Unique Britsh requirements

Have heard this banded about a lot can anybody think of any in equipment terms that were actually valuable.
I can think of the Apache re-engine that was a happy accident because we never planned to fly them in the afgan mountains.
Wasn't Nimrod unique as it didn't give off a sonic signature that submarines could pick up on due to it being the only sub hunter with jet engines?

A BV is indeed essential. Not sure it's uniquely British though. How the deuce would a civilised nation make tea without one?
I heard all your tanks and vehicles have tea making facilities in them? ;P
Quite true, and the Panzers also have a mini-bar and fridge. But we also had instant cookers on the older recce vehicles like the Ferret - much faster than McDonalds or the Burger King - and we could have a full English breakfast cooked in less than 5 minutes, travelling at a steady 50 mph
And NBC (CRBN) proof toilets !
There was a Septic General who was always astounded by the British Army's capacity for making hot water, he was a fan of a cuppa to his credit. He reckoned that American's were light years behind us in this area!
US military never got the concept of BV's weird
Surely Tea making facilities are a must have? Do septics not have them in their somewhat inferior panzers?
No they have special little bags that you can add water too to heat things up.... wrapped in about 6lbs of packaging.
Wow, it this a BV thread? I once had a Sqn ldr who cross decked his crew and kit to another wagon because the BV was U/S.

Has anyone tried to make a brew with a MRE heater? it come out like slightly warmer piss, no wonder septics are so angry all the time, no brew kit indeed.
Excellent, a Burco boiler thread. This is my Texan model, in that it holds ten gallons.
